That's quite a unique frame. I wonder if those wires slits in the arms will create a weakness. I'm also a little concerned about the VTX being out in the open like that.

It was the last vtx I had around to test it... I was not patient enough to wait for the tramps Hv I ordered some days ago. I wanted to fly it :D But a tiny vtx like tramp or unify pro can enter in the frame.
After some crashes in ground and into trees, the frame is still in one piece, it's 4mm arms. Gotta test it more.

The frame is about 110g. It's not light but not so bad for a 6" 4mm frame. I'm working on a 5" race frame with the same design idea wich should weight arround 60g.

Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
